Tutoring

So. Miss E is at tutoring where she has been resisting writing sentences. It's sort of a final step for her in her communication. Her handwriting is still iffy and she's a lefty, so it explains some of why it's hard. But it's also hard for her to compose her sentences in a coherent, logical progression.

She rejected all kinds of subjects for her story and I finally suggested that she write about going and renting movies because that's all she will talk about. So we suggested that she write where she wants to go, what she wants to get and what she wants to do with it.

Fresh from Taos, I suggested that she *could* up her stakes and tension if she added that she didn't know if Mommy would let her watch the movies once she got them. Or if she had done enough work at the library to go to the movie library in the first place.

Somehow, E doesn't see the humor in this.
